1. Candles


First on our list of Top 6 Things Your Wedding Venue May Not Allow is candles. Candles are an excellent way to illuminate a space and create a very romantic ambiance. However, some venues may frown upon using real candles due to the open flames and smoke. Also, candles can be a liability if there are children at the wedding. But there is good news. You can opt for candles that operate by LED lighting. They can create the atmosphere that you want.



2. Fireworks


Fireworks are so exciting and a great way to impress your guests while making your exit. They do require supervision and should be orchestrated by a trained professional. Some venues do not allow the use of fireworks on the premises. That is why fireworks are on our list of Top 6 Things Your Wedding Venue May Not Allow.



3. Glitter


Although glitter adds that pop of something extra to just about anything. Some wedding venues are not a fan of it. Guess why? Yup, you guessed it. Trying to clean up glitter is no picnic. It gets into just about any and everything. There is a solution. Try using sequin or Payette fabrics to enhance the space and create the sparkly look you want.



4. Rose Petals


A wedding favorite. Rose petals create such a beautiful display when it comes to decor along the aisle. A venue may choose not to allow rose petals on the floor because they can be a hazard. They are pretty, but they can be slippery and also stain the floors. That is why this is one of our Top 6 Things Your Wedding Venue May Not Allow.



5. Moving Furniture


Some venues don't allow you to move furniture, especially if it is heavy and requires extra manpower to move it before and after your wedding. If this is the case, any furniture or fixed structures that are not in your wedding designs can be covered up. We suggest using draping or props that align with your wedding day decor to create the vision that you desire.



6. Hanging Greenery


Although greenery is another favorite, when it comes to wedding decor, especially if your wedding consists of a bohemian vibe. Some venues will not allow you to hang greenery from the ceiling. A good solution would be to add cascading greenery to a staircase, altar, or table runner.
